Okay...here I go again raving about Chalk Paint...I can't help myself...it's so very cool and fun to work with! Here's the latest piece I did for my Leaping Lotus space...
#1. Get out the brushes and paint...
#2. Find a piece of furniture to paint...I picked this dresser up at an estate sale for a VERY good price.
I started with a coat of Chalk Paint Primer Red (no sanding or priming with this paint...you gotta love that)!
Then I mixed Olive with Cream to create sage and worked both the sage and cream together in a blended fashion to create a cloudy, dreamy finish.
I rubbed the whole piece with dark wax and let it collect in all the nooks & crannies, then buffed it out to a yummy luster. I thought the original top looked great with the colors I used, so left it the natural wood and waxed that too, softening the age marks that were already there.
Inside the center door are three drawers, so I had a little fun and added an element of surprise by painting them in the Primer Red with a simple little Martha Stewart stencil in the Sage & Cream to tie in the outer finish.
And here it is in Leaping Lotus...
...waiting for it's new home !
